Pequena biografia
Chris Beckett was born in Oxford, England in 1955, and now lives in Cambridge, England. He has published three novels: Dark Eden, The Holy Machine and Marcher. He has been publishing short stories in the UK and the US, since 1990, and his short story collection, The Turing Test, won the Edge Hill Short Fiction Award in 2009, the UK's only national prize for single-author short-story collections.

His new short story collection, The Peacock Cloak, will be appearing at Easter 2013.
Chris Beckett works part-time as a lecturer in social work and he also writes text books on social work, in which he tries to use his experience of story telling to make the writing readable and lively. [adapted 7/23/2013 from Amazon.com]

I thought I really liked Dark Eden. And then I listened to Mother of Eden and liked it even more! John Redlantern was a fascinating character, but not terribly endearing. Starlight and Greenstone were both just so charming, in spite of their flaws. This world, the characters, and the story are all so fascinating and the narration is excellent. I am so sad I have to wait 2 monhts for Daughter of Eden! I can't wait!

The reviews for this here seem to be quite mixed, with some people loving it and some thinking it was overrated. I fall firmly into the former camp. This was a truly excellent sci fi novel, well conceived and constructed, beautifully imagined and full of great characters. Really first class

Hauntingly creepy and insightful. Flawed people floundering in a psychologically hostile territory. Everything is wrong, and nothing is solved. Form follows function.

It's hard to believe that this book is by the same author as Dark Eden or Beneath The World, A Sea. This is a political thriller potboiler with a little doom pasted on. The writing is really pedestrian compared to the prose in Dark Eden or Beneath The World, A Sea. If this was the first book I encountered by Chris Beckett, I would never read another of his books. I don't know if he's aiming for a different market, or this is supposed to be young adult, or what, but it's just not good writing, compared to those other books I mentioned. Both of them were haunting and will stay with me for years. This one is already mostly forgotten.… (mais)
